Project Progress Update
Board Meeting August 20, 2013

– Inland Waters Pollution Control’s packer installation crew is
currently installing packers and chemical grouting
in PCI-5 between 9 Mile Road and Stephens Road
on Amber Street in the City of Warren.
IWPC has placed 4,345 gallons, 51% of the contract amount
of chemical grout to date and has installed 3,600 packers,
68% of the contract amount of packers to date.
– After further review it has been decided that
IWPC’s subcontractor’s efforts to clean and prepare the
surface for the Glass Fiber Reinforced (GFR) shotcrete lining
in PCI-6 have proved to be too inefficient and costly to continue.
A work directive has been issued to have the delaminated
portions of the 12 lineal feet of shotcrete liner removed
and the substrate properly prepared, and for IWPC to
install the shotcrete liner for the 197 foot total length
of properly prepared surface.
The remainder of the Contract 3 shotcrete repair area
is to be replaced with HOBAS under Contract 4.
Northeast Pumping Station Improvements
– Inland Waters Pollution Control subcontractor;
Titus Welding completed the installation
of the fiberglass motor and pump platforms.

– Inland Waters Pollution Control set the stop gate in
place in preparation for the cleaning of the wet
wells at the NESPS. The South (Lakeshore) wet well
stop gate opening is 9 inches wider than the
North (corridor) wet well stop gate opening.
An existing extension was bolted to the North stop gate
and lowered into place to facilitate the cleaning of the
South wet well. When loaded from interceptor flows overnight,
the gate extension failed twisting the stop gate.
Quotations from two fabricators have been solicited
for the construction of new gates, and IWPC has been
directed to retain the lower cost firm to fabricate
the two gates without delay.
– Until the gate is replaced, the wet wells and the
150 hp dewatering pump intake piping cannot be cleaned out,
which is necessary to maintain a working water
surface elevation in the lower reaches of PCI-5.
In the meantime, IWPC has been using Pump No. 4 to
lower the water surface in the upper portions of PCI-5;
and so there has been no adverse affects on IWPC’s performance
in chemical grouting and packer installation in the
upper reaches of PCI-5 to date.

– Evaluated potential for adding additional length
of Hobas lining to Contract 4 to replace GFR shotcrete

currently negotiating change order with Jay Dee.
– Coordinated and assisted with Bodman with respect
to temporary and permanent easements being evaluated,
appraised, and negotiated final with property owners.

Warren has other Water Distribution Upgrades planned

It all gets a bit muddled as various pieces of info
seem to have various price tags associated with them.
The head of the Warren Waste Water Treatment Plant and a
city engineer said the total price of connecting to the
Oakland Macomb Interceptor could total around $30 million.

Which piece costs what is pretty darn tough for anyone
(like an ordinary taxpayer) to figure out and vote upon.
Which part is Federal, State or City funded and how does
it all affect a water distribution bill in the mailbox ?

City of Warren,Michigan has around $ 153 MILLION of debt
